Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 22, 1975, Lethbridge, Alberta IF YOU WONT BUY FROM THE PERMANENT, PUJASE BUY ONE FROM SOMEONE ELSE. A Registered Retirement Sav- ing! Plan from the Permanent could get you a nice refund on your 1974 income tax. And it can earn you healthy interest, compounded monthly. But frankly, at the Permanent, we dont feel those are the big reasons for buying an RSP. We think the most important reason is to protect your future. We're concerned when we see people making good money, enjoying the good not taking steps to ensure they can still enjoy the good life when they stop working. If you start an RSP at the Permanent this year and make regular annual contributions, you'll be amazed how fast the money will pile up. For ex- ample, if you had contributed per year over the past 15 yean, you would have already accumulated more than We have people to help put this saving power to work for your future. But if you decide to buy elsewhere, well understand. We'd rather see you with someone else's plan than none at all. The main thing is, don't let another year go by without getting a plan started. Last year you talked about it This year, do it. We'll even loan you the money to do it at low tax- deductible rates.

IL. 1175 Good times was having your very own Jumbo credil. Nobody got an allowance on our streel you either sold worms lo the" Fishermen or wild ferns lo the woman who made flowers out of Kleenex or you had a paper route. The man who ran the store knew how a guy could run shorl of ready cash when the worms weren't running. First he agreed to sell us cigarettes two for a nickel; then we moved up to cigars that were dipped in rum; then he agreed to sell us cigars and cigarettes even when we didn't have the money. We thought that was really terrific and before long Skin had him agree to lend us money lo go lo the movies. But even then I wouldn'l say you could call him a shy- lock or a loanshark. He always encouraged us lo keep our credil in line with our worm sales and he didn't charge interest. Even if you were a lillle late paying up you never had lo worry about him sending anybody around lo break your legs or anything like Ihut. Once he lei me run ihe lab all the way up to before he cul me off. Luckily it rained for about a week straight just about then and the worming was never better. Mostly we used our credit lo buy our Kiks and Jumbos. Good limes was having your very own lumbo of frosty, sweet, cream soda and open- throaling il on your bike down the centre line of ihe slreel wilh everybody watching no hands on Ihe handlebars. Later, when we grew older and more sophisticated, we learned how to make a Jumbo lasl all night. That way you always had little kids hanging around begging for sips. None of the fathers on our street belonged to a service club everybody said you had to work in a store for that and even our own local storekeeper was too small to ever hear the Lions roar. But we did have one man who belonged to the Knights of Co- lumbus and he had a sword and a cape and every- thing. Once a month he would get all dressed up with his fancy hat and cape for the big meeting and we would all gather at his window lo watch him dress. We didn't know much about the Knights except that they had some sort of secret handshake and when they got dressed up they all looked like Zorro. Some of Ihe guys had heard that they had passwords lo get into their clubhouse the same as us and that they did something to you on initiation night that was loo'horrible to repeal. Seems it had something to do with a moose or their sword but we could never be sure and of course wouldn't dare ask. None of us ever dreamed of making it into the Knights and gelling a sword of his own but then, lucky us, the Parish Guard was formed at Ihe church. The Guard, we were told, was set up to guard God, the Church and the Pope il he ever came to lown. If you got into the Guard you not only got a sword but a drum or a bugle, a nifty purple and yellow uniform wilh while gloves and very fast promotions: some of the guys made it to general before they learned to walk in step or do a real roll on their snare drums. Girls arrived on our slreel for real at about the same time as the Guard although I know now they were there all along Somehow until then they were always playing wilh dolls on one veranda while we were counting worms on another. And then one day Skin started chasing them wilh Ihe worms and nothing was ever Ihe same again. We took up kissing games and gave up onion sandwiches. Even sausage-making and spitting lost their lustre. 1 remember our last big spit over on Tommy's veranda. The champ was there and we were having a real time until somebody noticed the girls standing there watching not laughing or cheering ;
